Subject: September eBird Challenge
Hello PA Birders:

September’s eBird chalenge is the same as last September’s. With
migration in full swing this month, qualifying checklists will have the
added detail of Flyover Code or “F”. This can be found at the bottom of
the drop-down list of Breeding and Behavior codes. The F code needs
further explanation and examples of correct and incorrect uses are given
in detail the description of this month’s challenge on the eBird home
page. Because the flyover requirements are so specific, checklists made
at a hawk watch could be broken down into hourly segments. Fifteen
eligible checklists are needed. As always, to qualify, all sightings
must have counts only with no ‘X’s. Sightings also must be during this
month and not from historical data.

For those using the Android version of eBird Mobile and you are getting
an error downloading a checklist, you should update your app at Goggle
